Crusader Castles of the Baltic

I wrote a feature article for Current World Archaeology Magazine on the Ecology of Crusading project, which has just been published in issue 57. It's a brief overview for a general audience, so there's lots of basic info on the environmental and lab methods we are using as well as some of the preliminary results. And of course lots of fab photos of castles, fieldwork and whatnot. I like writing more general articles like this - it's something I can show the parents and they get all excited about. Pages of technical jargon in J. Arch. Sci. and the like never get quite the same reaction.

It's exactly 10 issues since the last piece I wrote for them in issue 47, 2011, on Catalhoyuk under the Microscope, which you can read an excerpt from here:
